Et flott hotell, men svært koselig betjening. God seng og fint bad. Gangavstand til strand. St Pete beach er en flott sandstrand. Hotellet er særdeles barnevennlig, med mange fasiliteter for barn. Jeg ble innlosjert på Breckenridge, på den siden hvor kjøletårnene står. Det anbefales ikke for de som ikke er vant til lyden av disse på natten.
Loved the lobby full of games , books and yummy coffee
Postcard Inn was what we were looking for in a quick getaway over the holidays. We had a king size garden view room. We were on the top 2nd level, no elevator. The main hotel entry was nicely decorated, lots of hangout places, a big table with games (my daughter loved the 3D tic TAC toe). There was also a photo booth. The Boathouse was a restaurant attached to the lobby...no room service. The garden had lots of lounging places too. There was an outdoor pool table and ping pong. At night the garden was lit with lanterns, and there was a fire pit. There is a snack shack next to the beach bar which is on St. Pete's beach. The pool supposed was heated and looked awesome, but was closed. The pool was a major reason for choosing this hotel. I wanted a heated pool as we were traveling in December. When I confirmed over the phone before booking the pool was heated; the receptionist said the pool would be closed for the first dayof our stay...however, we could use the pool at the next door hotel. The PostCard Inn pool was being filled when we arrived, so I looked forward to hanging out there and happily used the heated pool next door at "BeachComber". Unfortunately, during our entire stay of 4 days, the pool never opened. This was extremely dissapointing. On the third day heading over to BeachComber's pool, I was hassled by their maids for using their pool, they called their supervisor to confirm that we did not have access to their pool, but let us go swimming there anyway. The low was 40F one night we were there. So in anticipation, I turned up the thermostat to 75F that nice. I am fairly confident the heat wasn't working...because it was very cold. The next night was again cold, and I cranked up the thermostat to its maximum...88F and still was cold. The rooms had high ceilings, were cutely decorated but the bathrooms were tiny. Also, there were wooden blinds that could close, but no curtains to be pulled over...just decorative curtains. There was a TV and padded wooden chair. Between the room/bathroom there was a closet/dressing room...it was very tiny, but had hangers on one side and shelving on the other. The Boathouse restaurant was overpriced and wasn't really very good for dinner. We had a hamburger and shrimp tacos. Breakfast was nice though - biscuits and gravy and an omelette.
Very nice place to stay , probably avoid holiday weekends , if you are traveling with families , staff very friendly , always security staff present , outside pool area seemed to be very clean and maintained. Staircase and walls are In need of fresh coat of paint , a little grungy .. Floors in the room never cleaned , sand beneath our feet.. Housekeeping needs to be addressed , location very nice . The rooms seemed a bit warm , Ac is centrally controlled , had to be moved to another room, definitely adjusted the Ac at night as it seemed to be very uncomfortable for sleeping .. Prob hotel watching costs , instead of guest satisfaction .. Keep your eye on additional fees and taxes when booking rooms ..
Liked the beachy/surfer "feel" of the location. I travelled in January and the weather wasn't great (windy and cold) plus there is some construction going on, mostly in the main lobby I believe. This really didn't impact my trip, as I was there for a friends wedding taking place literally just down the road. For the money and location, great value. I'd love to come back here and enjoy the pool/beach during the summer! Loud people next door and above my room - or perhaps the walls are just a little thin? The room could use some new paint and a few non-essential updates.
Affordable, location on the beach, and staff were all great.
Love the decor and amenities. Overall...a great stay.
I was really looking forward to this weekend, in fact I proposed to my girlfriend. My room's AC didn't work the entire stay. Then instead of compensating me they charged me a resort fee. I got charged extra for staying in an uncomfortable room.
Amazing location, cool bar, laid back environment
location many issues with reservations using booking.com. staff was rude about the extra day we needed. will not return
It was a rip off to have an additional charge of $22.60 per day for no justifiable reason? We received no special service, nor did the resort offer any exceptional amenities? The overall experience was mediocre and I would not recommend it to my friends or family.
We found our stay to be very relaxing, clean. Staff was great as well as amenities! All kinds of activities onsite. Plus.. It's on the beach and close to local attractions and thanks to their 'in-room' book, we went deepsea fishing and dolphin watching. Loved the decor and atmosphere! PCI needs more ice machines, that's it!
it was a beautiful spot and the staff was nice I felt like I was staying in a college dorm in the middle of a frat party
Love the resort. Great location the food is good - eating local or on property is easy. Love the live music and great sunsets! Roach in room and the WiFi was not staying strong while in the room. However, the staff was quick to help. I received a call back and a knock on door to check to see if all was ok. But still had problems.
Very large room with kitchen and large closet Bugs, no view, loud beach bar, aggressive parking attendant, mediocre front desk, commercial type toilet, old shower fixtures, overall uncleanliness
location staff dirty bed linens loud Spring Break guys next door bathroom
The room and staff were wonderful. Gary the entertainer at Jimmy Bs was awesome. The food was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful. Richard at the front desk was more than hospitable. Everything was just perfect
Near beach. Very Noisy. Dirty carpet.
The room was clean and the big closet was very nice. The pools were really nice. Staff was friendly. The 1" step going into the bathroom, we stubbed our toes a couple times. There isn't a complimentary breakfast.
Easy access to beach Broken lamp Dead battery in TV remote
Walking distance to everything, clean rooms and bug free. The food and drinks were a bit pricey and the heated pool was too warm. Bring cash to rent chairs on the beach.
Perfect place for a getaway. On the beach. Live music at Jimmie B's. Heated pools. Great wait staff.
I liked that it seemed like the center of activity on the beach. Jimmy B's was right there on the beach, grab a dri K listen to the ocean or the band. The courtyard was nice to have chairs outside your room to sit and relax. Parking was tight and often almost full.
Corner room close to loud bar through priceline - no water views
Beachfront and beach access. 3 great beachfront too bars. Rooms were disgusting. Bathroom was awful.
Loved the location and beachfront access. Close to a lot of great restaurants and bars. The staff was awesome and very friendly. We forgot a shirt and bottle of cologne at checkout. They called about an hour later to tell us that we left some things behind. That was very unexpected and very much welcomed. Great family hotel with lots to do with the kids. There was sand all over the room like the floors hadn't been vacuumed from the previous visitors. It was definitely irritating that house keeping left an envelope for tips. We couldn't take our shoes off. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were dated. Parking was very tight also. If you were driving after dinner time, good luck parking.
It was fine but outdated
There were a variety of activities; shuffle board, ping pong, bags, basketball and tennis. The rooms do not even remotely resemble the pictures, they are beyond dated to the point of grungy. There is a small stove with a frying pan and a pot but nothing to bake with. The rooms smell bad and there is really no control over the temperature of your room.
Can't beat the location for beach time. The staff is friendly. The grounds are well tended. The facilities are definitely dated; the property could use some sprucing up.
The location was perfect, the staff was very nice with the exception of the early morning checkout guy, and the outside grounds were awesome. The room reminded me of and old motel, the resort in the name is misleading. The window style air conditioner was noisy and ran all night. In addition, the bathrooms were leftover from the 1970's, the showerhead hardly worked, the tub had caulking smeared around the tub, and had a dirty feel. The bed was like sleeping on a rock, with a thin cushion on top.
The hotel was great for the price! Friendly staff, clean, close to beach and restaurants, plenty of parking, 2 pools, 1 hot tub, elevators, tennis courts, shuffle board, etc. Hotel provided a crib for our 8 month old but we ended up bringing our own pack and play. Able to rent out cabanas on beach daily for $25, which provided a nice shaded area for the baby. The hotel was clean but it was kind of dated. Smoking was allowed by the pool areas. The bar on the beach closed super early on the weekend.
several pools. toys/floaties provided. very kids friendly. beautiful beach to walk lots of shells to find. lots of room in the suites, great value for your money.
The location is great! Walking distance is most anything! Price I think was appropiate and it was nice! Would go there again!! Rooms could be bigger, but other than that I can't think of anything!!
Staff was friendly, great location, clean rooms, great value
The kitchenette, complimentary coffee and daily newspaper were appreciated. Not as dog friendly as advertised.
The resort is great, right on the beach. The staff is nice, overall a great stay at Alden.
The staff at Alden Suites made you feel like you were staying in a 5-star hotel. They were so kind, helpful and very accommodating. I did not like that there was not a work-out facility on the premise.
The location, value, room comfort and the staff and the comedy club with it.
The hotel had a variety of activities and restaurants to enjoy. The beds were very uncomfortable and the amenity charges were outrageous. They also allowed some of their guests to get drink and get drunk at the childrens pools.
Great location right on the beach. Good restaurants and bars nearby.
We appreciated the upgrade to a suite at no additional cost. The big blue slide at the Island Grand was ridiculously expensive and should've been included in the $25 resort fee. The adult pool area was too noisy at night (we stayed in a suite, room 3805.) We needed a repair on the door room handle, and it wasn't repaired until we had to call a second time.
I think the hotel very expensive considering when we got there it was more like a motel. We were expecting something a little more luxurious
Excellent staff and good service
I loved being on the beach with all actives and atmosphere. Nothing
The location and view of the beach was incredible. The entire facility seemed outdated, run-down and in need of renovations. Probably would not stay here again.
Excelllent on-site bistro Garage
The atmosphere begs to be enjoyed. You will not find. More relaxing environment.
Location was excellent The facilities require a much needed upgrade. It appeared rundown and dirty. We booked this place because of its affiliation with Wyndham and it did not live up to the expectation. It should also be a non-smoking facility. Given the potential of the facilities, I think it should be renovated!
The beds were very comfortable. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a good one. The atmosphere was very pleasant and very enjoyable. All around a very wonderful place to stay. I didn't have any issues with anything I didn't like.
Rooms were clean and comfortable Common areas of hotel looked run down
The location was excellent. Beds and room size were nice. The staff in the restaurant and bars were great. The hotel appeared a bit dingy overall, but nothing that I would directly complain about.
